Puy lentil, tofu and roasted courgette salad

I'm so sorry that I haven't been posting many recipes lately. The holiday threw me out of the normal routine a little bit and it was hard getting back during the first normal week. Luckily I didn't find work too bad and managed to cook a couple of times in the week. I have been eating a lot comfort food in order to get used to the routines again. Now I made a salad for a change where warm and cold bits are combined and it's quite filling with its lentils and tofu. Today was a really hot day again, so a salad is quite a suitable meal.


3 baby gem lettuce
200 g smoked tofu
1 tsp vegetable oil
200 g cherry tomatoes
6 mini courgettes
½ cup puy lentils
1 vegetable stock cube
Olive oil
Balsamic vinegar
Ground black pepper


Cut the tofu into small cubes and fry them in vegetable oil until firm.

Cut the courgettes into smaller pieces and brush them with olive oil. Roast them in the oven until soft with some roasting marks.

Cook the lentils in water with added vegetable stock cube until done. Then remove the cooking water.

Cut the gem lettuce and tomatoes into smaller bits.

Combine the ingredients. I prefer eating the warm components warm, but they are perfectly good cooled down as well.

Season with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper and enjoy!

  1. Although its been drizzly here, it has been quite muggy - def. a day for salad.

    1. It's starting to be drizzly here now, but I don't mind. It's a cosy Saturday evening nevertheless. Have a good weekend! :)
